The Commonwealth of Reftaria is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by Luke Carlton with an even hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, free-roaming dinosaurs, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, cheerful, devout population of 6.459 billion Reftarians enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The relatively small government prioritizes Education, with Environment, Welfare, and Administration also on the agenda, while Defense is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Jacobs. The average income tax rate is 41.2%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Reftarian economy, worth 951 trillion reftens a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Retail. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 147,390 reftens, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

East Lebatuckese luxury goods are plundered by the working class of Reftaria, flu research is commonly shut down for fear of creating a superbug, bouncers at the door of the sweet shop warn five-year-olds not to cause trouble, and Maxtopian tourists make expensive pilgrimages to Jacobs to enjoy their national art. Crime is totally unknown. Reftaria's national animal is the osprey, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Roman Catholicism.

Reftaria is ranked 188,679th in the world and 7,587th in The East Pacific for Most Primitive, scoring -249.15 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
